Great lunch for 6 people today - the quality was amazing and the portions were generous. The king prawns to start and the catch of the day were a great combo and definitely recommended. I’m certain we will be back when in the area again....Thanks all.More

With the view of the marina a perfect setting for a seafood platter for 2. Although it rained & lightening we were under cover on the front with a view of the boats in the marina. The staff were very friendly & nothing was too...much trouble. Definitely worth a visit.More

Having lunched at a number of waterside pubs and restaurants in the eastern Solent (mainland and Isle of Wight) over the summer, this place surprised us by nudging into first place for the quality of its food. We started with the all too common list...of what wasn't available from the menu (is this Brexit, climate change, Russia's warmongering, the pandemic?), but what was still available turned out to be very good. Whether the cod and chips, stuffed aubergine, burger, tomato salad or brownie pudding, the six of us were all impressed by the flavours and lightness of touch, combined with sometimes generous portion sizes (the burger turned out to be a properly meaty double pattie, the brownie with ice cream serves two). Whatever oil they are deep frying in, the fish and chips came out crisp, dry and free from the usual sense of grease. The open and airy first floor restaurant, with its generous sundeck, overlooks the marina and surrounding nautical businesses. And a final tip - don't pay for parking, just enter your reg in reception and you'll get three hours for free.More

With both food and service excellent, we had a lovely dinner experience at The Deck. Moules were delicious and a huge portion for starters, surf & turf was fantastic with steaks of good quality and the fish and chips mouthwatering. However I had one small...niggle and that is the very uncomfortable chairs, next time I visit I will try to reserve a table on the veranda as those chairs looked much more comfortable.More

Really good restaurant. Friday evening meal while we were staying in the area was a real find. Food was superb, staff all really helpful and friendly and the location to die for. Great value for money too. Lots of fish dishes if that’s what you...want but other options too and they catered really well for my gluten free wife. Thoroughly recommend.More

Had a lovely lunch here today. Booking online via the website was very easy and booking was confirmed quickly. Warm welcome and given our choice of tables outside (possibly because it was quiet when we arrived but nice to have our pick). Took our drinks...order straight away and they came out quickly. Staff were really friendly and polite. No kids menu however they were happy to do our daughter a small plate for main and pudding. Food was delicious and portion sizes were perfect. Lovely food, good service in a great location (especially on a warm day!). Will definitely be going back. Thanks for a lovely lunch.More

I visited the Deck with 3friends on Wednesday 20th July. We had a lovely lunch. The food and the service were wonderful. The best Crab I have tasted. We all agreed we will be going to the Deck again.

Went for lunch at the Deck mid week. For this I had to book one week in advance for a later time than I had really wanted. What a disappointment. Have been going there for years. All the umbrellas have been taken away if you...want to sit outside. It was a boiling hot day and we waited an hour for our meal. We were not even asked what we would like to drink on arrival and after half an hour asked the waitress. Eventually had to sit inside with my visitors as was just too hot sitting in hot sun with no drink and no food and no shade. After twice complaining eventually got the food. Was told it was a small kitchen and they were busy. They told us what time to come, not the other way round, so presume they overbooked. Food not all that wonderful when it did eventually come. Won't be returning any time soon. Such a pity.More

We've been customers of the Deck for years, and sadly I think our visit on Sunday will be our last. We deliberately booked the Sunday, as the menus online showed that it was the only day they now do lobster (one of our main reasons...for going to the Deck). We arrived to be immediately told that it was the only thing not being served that day. My husband then went for the crab as his main, and we were both shocked at how small it was. The service was awful, despite the restaurant only being half full. For 2 hours we literally listened to almost every table having to complain about service, food etc. We're so sad as this has been our favourite restaurant for a very long time (and I've been more than happy to give them glowing reviews in the past).More

First time visitng The Decl. What a lovely evening. Weather was just perfect for an Al Fresco meal. Although the writer has a shellfish intollerance, other members of our dinner party are able to eat shellfish. We were certainly spoilt for choice from a great...menu of beautiful, locally sourced fish dishes. Service was friendly and not intrusive. Looking forward to our next visit!More
